Dusky Legend (2/1), Verdana Blue (2/1), Coillte Lass (6/1), Deauville Crystal (8/1), Brillare Momento (9/1), Smaoineamh Alainn (10/1), Casablanca Mix (14/1), Naranja (66/1)

Verdict

A cracking start and this will take some winning and plenty will fancy their chances. Coillte Lass will appreciate this ease in grade and both the promising Deauville Crystal and Brillare Momento are worthy of respect and a chance in this grade. This could boil down to the re-match between Dusty Legend and VERDANA BLUE with the latter just having more scope for improvement and taken to reverse Festival placings.
  1. Verdana Blue
